The Tokyo Iced Tea is a riff on the famous classic – The Long Island Iced Tea. The Tokyo Iced Tea takes this classic and gives it a unique spin, with Midori liqueur and a splash of lomon-lime soda. Like its predecessor, the Tokyo Iced Tea combines a diverse array of spirits, including vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and triple sec. However, it’s the addition of the world’s most popular melon liqueur, Midori, that elevates this cocktail to new heights.

Midori, a green liqueur with a distinct melon flavor, hails from Japan and has become a staple in bars around the globe. Its name, meaning “green” in Japanese, perfectly captures the essence of this liqueur, which adds a burst of color and a refreshing sweetness to this cocktail. Renowned for its versatility, Midori has the ability to transform ordinary cocktails into extraordinary experiences. In this cocktail, it not only contributes its unique flavor but also imparts a touch of Japanese culture to this international favorite.

We love this cocktail so much because it seamlessly blends potent spirits, achieving a perfect balance with fresh lime juice and a fizzy finish of lemon-lime soda.
